and a block of mild cheddar.â€
This humble artist played Nashville until his fingers bled, covered the lacerations with super-glue to dull the pain, and continued to play. Fortunate for him, Nashvilleâ€™s finest crop of revolving-door musicians not only had a surplus of super-glue, but an open ear for up-and-coming talent.
Boasting guitar performances from Kevin Teel (Matthew Ryan and Holly Williams) and Adam Landry (Allison Moorer), Broockeâ€™s debut full-length album holds itâ€™s own in every department- from western hats to golf knickers and boots, clean up on aisle 9. Recorded at Bucky Baxterâ€™s studio in Nashville and featuring the Bob Dylan and Ryan Adams band mate on pedal steel, Be Somebody is a finely blended sample of Americana singer-songwriter jam with a hint of butter-flavored pop-rock sensibility. Not to be mistaken for margarine or jelly; Just some home-cooked tunes, making their way to your stereo via an old-fashioned independent release.
Now in his mid twenties Zach has taken up new residence in the Hollywood Hills. Backed by a new, rocking group of musicians including Jamie Wallum on drums (Jackson Browne), Scott Bennett on lead guitar (Brian Wilson) Jared Leifert on bass, and Byrum on keys, all based out of Hollywood, California, the sounds of Zach Broocke are creeping into the ears of music lovers and industry leaders everywhere. Through hard work, perseverance, and certain acquired confidence, Broocke hopes that with each new song comes a new depth of lyrical, instrumental and even emotional connection. He strives for the common goal among artists, to obtain a connection with his audience through the pulse of his music. Broocke's rough, folk-inspired vocals and rock pop sensibility tell a familiar story in a new way. Zach looks forward to sharing his stories with the rest of the world. He is currently promoting his debut album, rocking out venues across the nation, and anticipates a fresh and enticing album coming soon to a pair of headphones near you.
